I'm a long term subscriber, The 4 songs out of the first 5 I saved to my spotify account became my profile picture. Two of the 4 pictures are the same band. I like these songs but dont feel they represent my true musical taste or favorites. How can I customize my profile picture?
Edit - My apologies, I think I posted this in the wrong forum, I'm using the downloadable Spotify app for PC. Mods please move if need be.
Solved! Go to Solution.

Hello, Fredcat! I've moved this topic to a more suitable category! To answer your question: The only way to change your profile picture is by linking your account to Facebook and then it will use the Facebook profile picture. There's currently no way to set an avatar to represent your public profile if your are not linked to Facebook.
From what you are saying, I get that you created a playlist and the songs you added to that playlist became its avatar. Just like above, there's currently no way to customize your playlist picture.

Also, just to add:
There is an idea for being able to edit your profile picture without connecting to facebook here. It has been marked as Not right now as they have other priorities right now but that doesn't mean they won't come back to it in the future.
There is also an idea for customising playlist pictures and info here.
Feel free to add Kudos and comment on them to show your support!

Profile pictures need to be updated by a 3rd party unless you have a VIP account in which case you should be able to change it I think:

I figure the problem would be screening out offensive photos. I'm sure Facebook has a robust algorithm to screen them out, so Spotify is pretty much piggybacking off of that.
Still doesn't change the fact that Spotify needs to hurry up and give us a way to put a photo up directly!
